Keep Breathing , Needs Practice !

Recently met a friend who is a seasoned runner and is also practising for Half Marathon , i told him that i am struggling with my run - inspite of running for last 2 months i am only able to achieve 4.5km in 28 minutes - half marathon still seems a distant dream .

He says , running is about breathing correctly , if you learn how to breathe correctly , running will follow . His advice sounds familiar , heard the same thing about singing , swimming etc that its all about breathing properly .

If so , for the last 34 years , every second , am breathing only and it still needs practice to correct the technique !!!!! .

Malcolm Gladwell - you said 10000 hours / 10 years is all it takes to make you an expert , and here i am doing the same thing , for more than 30000+ hours and still not able to master it ??

Any way - Keep Breathing , Its must !

Trip to Abilene !

The Abilene paradox is a paradox in which a group of people collectively decide on a course of action that is counter to the preferences of any of the individuals in the group. It involves a common breakdown of group communication in which each member mistakenly believes that their own preferences are counter to the group's and, therefore, does not raise objections. A common phrase relating to the Abilene paradox is "rocking the boat".

Sounds familiar ? think we all would have taken a "trip to abilene" some time or other in our corporate life , try avoiding - speak up and stand out !
